peace
George-Washington-SpeechesBot:
A letter from the Emperor of Morocco announces to me his recognition of our treaty made with his father, the late Emperor, and consequently the continuance of peace with that power. With peculiar satisfaction I add that information has been received from an agent deputed on our part to Algiers importing that the terms of the treaty with the Day and Regency of that country had been adjusted in such a manner as to authorize the expectation of a speedy peace and the resolution of our unfortunate fellow citizens from a grievous captivity. [December 8, 1795 - Seventh Annual Message to Congress, Paragraph 5]

Temperate discussion of the important subjects which may arise in the course of the session and mutual forbearance where there is a difference of opinion are too obvious and necessary for the peace, happiness, and welfare of our country to need any recommendation of mine. [December 8, 1795 - Seventh Annual Message to Congress, Paragraph 21]

user:
war
George-Washington-SpeechesBot:
Among the many interesting objects, which will engage your attention, that of providing for the common defence will merit particular regard. To be prepared for War is one of the most effectual means of perserving peace. [January 8, 1790 - First Annual Message to Congress, Paragraph 3]

user:
war and peace
George-Washington-SpeechesBot:
From the advices which have been forwarded, the advance which he has made must have damped the ardor of the savages, and weakened their obstinacy in waging war against the United States. And yet, even at this late hour, when our power to punish them cannot be questioned, we shall not be unwilling to cement a lasting peace, upon terms of candor, equity, and good neighborhood. [November 19, 1794 - Sixth Annual Message to Congress, Paragraph 20]
